    Hi All

    I was not successful last month and did not start. However I did start a few weeks later on February 1 today is day 5 and up until yesterday I had lost 4 lbs. was on the 30 day program last year with my mom. Both lost 25 lbs me and 28 mom kept it off for over 10 months and the holidays something went wrong . All of a sudden my clothes were not fitting me as they should have. So I am back on and feeling better.. Not sure if I can do 30 days this time. (Last year I was home and not working which made it easier to prep and more activity than sitting Ina an office for 8 to 10 hrs a day. Wish me luck second time around.????

    Hi everyone! I'm new here and I came here to do the juice fast, and to have maybe some supporters on my journey. I've struggled with weight ever since I can remember, and I'm ready for a healthy change! I have a dance coming up at my school and I really want to look nice, and fit into a dress I really like! The dance is in a couple weeks! Ekk! Wish me luck!

    Don't forget folks, for juicing after 15 days you need to add a plant protein powder and oil. I've had hemp powder in the past but taking spirulina now, also I either take a blend of omega 3, 6 and 9 oils or flaxseed oil, as this is better than olive oil which is low in omega 3 and higher in omega 6 (we generally get plenty of omega 6 but not enough omega 3).

    I lost 7 pounds on the five day challenge and I'm thrilled. I did eat healthy on Sunday, but back on the juicing 100% for this week too. I'm using the 5-Day Reboot from Joe's book this time to mix it up with some different juices. I have until March 22 to get myself in shape or doctor is putting me back on statins. Don't want that.

    My fear is that I will gain weight back, however, I'm taking one day at a time, and I know what good foods I should put in my body...just need to believe in myself more.

    Awesome start.

    Marylou, one day at a time is good. If you have a pic of yourself when you were at our ideal weight carry it with you in your purse/wallet have it visible so that when you take your credit card or money to pay for anything you remind yourself of how strong you are and how great it felt to be healthy!

    Look at the picture every night before you go to bed and every morning when you wake up. It will be a constant reminder and will help when choosing what to put in your body if you are concerned that you will go back to unhealthy eating habits. :)

    hi everyone, it seems like most everyone had a great week rebooting. CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    I'm sorry to say that did not...

    Day 1: Broke out in hives, allergic reaction to coconut water!

    Day 2: Stayed home from work popping Benedryl and juicing.

    Day 3: Urgent Care for the hives and back to work and juicing, still itchy and red.

    Day 4: Woke up with a Full Blown Cold!!!

    Day 5: Stayed home in bed with cold, cold meds and tissues, finished up the juicei had left over and drank teas and water.

    I'm still sick but feeling better. I will start my reboot again tomorrow! Wish me luck!!

    Sorry to hear that your week started out so bad. Hope you are doing better! Keep up the juices and best of luck to you!

    That may point to your body really needing a detox/cleanse. The more reason to stick with the reboot!

    Good job everyone. I too am going to continue on. I lost 7 pounds on the first 5 days. This weekend I am continuing with a healthy plant based meal. I don't feel well without some protein in the diet. Lots more energy though. Lets see what next week brings me. Woo hoo - it's nice to have loose clothing.

    So I am continuing on with the Juice Fast. I am on Day 7 and have lost almost 20 lbs. I have been feeling great since Day 3. However, today I woke up really weak, dizzy and light headed. Not sure if it is related. Any suggestions?

    Yesterday, day 6, I had fun eating healthy. Breakfast was oatmeal made with whole rolled oats, chopped almonds, ground flaxseed, diced fruit, and almond milk. No sweeteners at all and tasted delicious. Lunch was a big green salad with onion and oranges. Dinner was stir fry with tofu, rice, and veggies. The only problem there was that I had not realized I was out of brown rice and used white rice. That plus the sweet teriyaki sauce triggered sugar cravings and I caved a bit in the evening. Lesson learned. I did sip juice green here and there throughout the day whenever I felt hungry, thirsty, or was just grazing the fridge.

    Just wanted to share that when you make your own veggie broth with the pulp and trimmings, everything you make with it (soups, sauces, etc.) tastes sooo much better than the stuff in the box. I juice all the veggies first (twice through) and put all the pulp and any scraps in an air tight container or plastic bag. I don't save the fruit pulp, but lots of people use it for smoothies and baking (there's a dog biscuit recipe on the website). At the end of the week I sauté some onions and garlic in a tiny bit of olive or coconut oil, add the pulp and scraps (fill the pan and stir for a minute or two), cover with water, add some herbs, bring to a boil and then simmer, covered, for about 3 hours. When it's done, strain, let it cool and put in containers for the freezer. It thaws quickly in a saucepan. Really uses all those veggies to full advantage and makes the grocery bill a little easier to swallow.
